Routine search turns up well-armed individuals and drugs


By the A.M. Costa Rica staff

Judicial agents seeking a missing person encountered rifles, pistols, marijuana and cocaine.

The Judicial Investigating Organization said its agents were conducting a routine search in Limón when they spotted a man carrying an AR-15 firearm. The man with the weapon shouted to others in a nearby house and one man fled with a bag.

Agents said they managed to round up the man and found weapons in the bag. After a judge provided the paperwork, the agents entered the home and one nearby. They said they discovered more firearms and drugs.

They said that they presumed that the individuals were involved in a local criminal organization selling drugs.
